Open Shelving Revamp

 Awhile ago I decided to add a few open shelves on a small wall that sits at the end of our island. I actually did it on a whim. I was at Ikea buying shelves for our master bedroom when I came across the Fabian wall shelves. As soon as I saw them I thought to myself, “hey, those would work in my kitchen! I NEED to get those (something I may, or may not, say often).

IMG_0064The shelves come unfinished, so I simply stained them with a dark walnut stain, sprayed them with semi-gloss poly, and threw them on the wall with my favorite anchors. I had grand visions of the most adorable open shelving kitchen decor, but well…that sort of didn’t happen. I rounded up some decor I had sitting around the house and called it a day. It always seemed unfinished and empty. Until now that is!





It finally feels complete! Nothing a clock and some white dishes (which I have a serious weakness for) couldn’t fix!

This was SO easy I’m kicking myself for waiting so long.

See where this post likes to party!

    Wow! It looks really good! I am so excited about the anchors you chose. They are so fab! I am really impressed, because ti be real honest with you I am scared to pieces of open shelving because I am afraid that in no time at all it will just become a clutter catcher and look messy. Your looks so good… good for you!!! 🙂

  3. Great revamp! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links on Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week 🙂


    • Thanks Katelyn! The anchors I put in the wall are from Lowe’s, but you can find them anywhere. There’s a link in the post for them where it says “favorite anchors”. It’s kind of hard to see. I need to fix it. Thanks for stopping by!
